Surrendering Your Cat

Seattle Area Feline Rescue does accept owner surrendered cats on a limited basis. Our first priority is for cats that were originally adopted from SAFe Rescue. If your cat came from us or Animal Talk Rescue, please let us know. Our second focus is cats that are in other shelters or rescues.

If you need to rehome a cat, we suggest starting by reaching out to friends, family, neighbors, and local community members. Your kitty’s new home may be closer than you think!

Going straight from your home to a new owner will be the least stressful option for your feline. For tips and resources on finding your kitty a new home, please see our article on rehoming cats.  

If you adopted your cat from another organization, we suggest you contact them to see if they will accept the cat. They may be able to help sooner than we can.

If you would like us to add your cat to our list for intake consideration, please fill out this Information Form and we will be in touch if we feel the cat would thrive in the Adoption Center. (Providing this information does not guarantee the cat a space in the rescue: we do not have the resources to respond to every request.)

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high volume of inquiries we receive, if we do assess that we are able to help your kitty, it may take weeks or months before we are able to offer a space. We suggest contacting other organizations as well and continuing your efforts to reach out to local networks to rehome the kitty.

Before rehoming or surrendering, it is always a good idea to make sure your kitty is up to date on vaccines and has had a recent veterinary check-up.
